Our utterly delicious food, from first thing in the morning to last thing at night, will melt on your tongue and always leave you wanting more. The Boat Bistro has yet again been awarded 2 AA rosettes for it’s exceptional food and outstanding service. Our menus comprise contemporary interpretations of classic British dishes. Our Lunch and Dinner menus also feature daily Best of British specials. It almost goes without saying that we use fresh, local, seasonal produce as the norm.

As well as a fully cooked Scottish breakfast, you can order anything from delicate smoked Scottish Haddock to meltingly beautiful Eggs Florentine. If there’s anything else you’d like to eat, just ask. We’re not too posh or proud to make boiled egg and soldiers…
